Welcome to special forces units. Where they dont give a flying fvck and do what they came to do
@PandaPoots, I just worry so much about what these people's lives are like when they get back. I know too many people with severe PTSD.
@GunSupporter, yea that is a big issue. I dont know much about the support groups that are available but i think we need to help the vets out as much as we can since they put their lives on hold to protect their country
@PandaPoots, there is way too much medicating to get the problem to go away from what I have seen.
Dude saved on his 10 bullets by drowning guy in a puddle in a desert. Cheers!
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, It's like a Chuck Norris joke but more bada@ss because it's real, and more sophisticated because it's British
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, water is cheaper then bullets and budgets are tight
@RustyFapwagon, in the desert, terrorist blood is cheaper than water, and terrorists are conveniently full of it.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, possibly a puddle of blood or piss. It doesnt specify. If he used his own piss, thats the best bm kill ever. Someone elses blood, thats vengeance. His own blood, thats metal! If it was water, thats still a cool story.
@Majesticmoose00, pig blood ftw
We only have 10 bullets so you're going to have to share!
@Charmander Shepherd, first thing I thought too!
@Charmander Shepherd, uk he said "good deadpool" after he drowned him
Who dares wins.
*Deep sigh* Fewer
This was taken from an article from The Sun so even though we want it to be true it's probably total bullshît
What a load of s*** the teams deploy with thousands of rounds in HE, .50, personal weapons, rockets. Squad weapons (LMG) if they had already depleted that much ammo without the Rapid reaction teams and S&R arriving then they must have been fighting hundreds at once.
Then the perimeter would have to be overran avoiding claymore mines and disarming the soldier of his weapon/bayonet/entrenching tool
@Dreadnought , sounds like you read the article
@Dreadnought , I googled it. Apparently they got ambushed and stuck inside a dried riverbed shooting around 50 Isis fighters from all sides and were pretty convinced they were going to be captured and tortured so they tried to take as many out as they could, eventually resorting to bashing fighters with their guns and rocks before Isis gave up
@A Flying Panda, The newspaper who originally reported it was the UK daily star which focuses mainly on gossip. I wouldn't trust anything they state regarding Special operations
@Dreadnought , Ahh I see. Didn't really know, was just summarizing the top article the pic derives from. Still confuses me as to why the fighters would still want them alive when they'd already taken so many casualties and then fled.
@A Flying Panda, look at it this way, if they were trapped at the bottom of a slope in a river bed. Why did the ISIS soldiers get close enough for hand to hand combat and not just throw grenades in
@Dreadnought , Yeah that's what I was saying. Confusing. If they had the men and the armaments to cause the SAS to run out of ammo, they wouldn't call it quits after their comrades died trying to take 'em alive, they'd just shoot to kill or lob something down there. Then again, history is written by the victors.
@A Flying Panda, probably some squaddie wanted some cash and told the daily star some crap and made it sound cool so he'd get paid
@Dreadnought , I'm open to any possibility but sounds pretty close to what I was thinking.
Squad returns back from firefight with nearly no ammo, no injuries.
Get asked what happened.
"Oh we got like 50 guys during an ambush near the dried riverbed two clicks from here."
"Yeah ol' Jimmy boy here clocked a guy with a rock and drowned his buddy too in a two inch puddle!"
Reporter takes info and writes article
@A Flying Panda, gets them a round of beers when they get back
@A Flying Panda, there is a book by David blakley called Pathfinder. Well worth a read regarding these sort of teams
@Dreadnought , Basically. Squads would back each other up, whether that be a firefight or a side of a story. Also I'm fairly certain that's actually one of the books my pops has on his nightstand, I'll check it out thank you
Sas. Stupid a$$ sand nig... umm people.
@DRAGONSHEART2018, The SAS are British special forces.
@RandomUsername042, I know. You know how people see a word or a abbreviation or something and try to make a meaning different from its original? Thats what i did there.
@DRAGONSHEART2018, But why try and make a name making fun of the SAS. They are badass.
@RandomUsername042, why make a name making fun of anyone. Its fun to see what people come up with.
@DRAGONSHEART2018, Fair enough. To each their own.
I really wish we heard stories like this more often, or even on the mainstream media. This stuff is hella cool, and I'm sure there are even crazier stories like this that never see the light of day.
Does this remind anyone else of the Spartans VS the Persians? 300? Where the Spartans fought until their weapons broke and then picked up rocks and finally using just their fists?
One of my favorite stories of all time.
Drowned in a puddle in the desert is still too good of a way to go for a jihadi.
